Wolfgang Joachim Zuckermann (born 11 October 1922) is a noted harpsichord maker, author and environmental and social activist. He was born in Berlin, became an American citizen in 1938 and has lived in France since 1995. He saw front line action as a Private with the U.S. Army and followed this by obtaining a BA in English and psychology from Queens College, New York, winning the title of Queens College Scholar, the highest honor conferred upon graduates at that institution. After a stint as a child psychologist, Zuckermann, an amateur musician, became one of the first harpsichord makers in the United States and in the late 1950s invented the “do-it-yourself” harpsichord kit, sometimes called the ‘Model T’ harpsichord, which he sold in large quantities to institutions, professionals, and individuals around the world, thus fundamentally transforming a significant part of the world musical scene. He worked as a senior associate with EcoPlan and the New Mobility Agenda program from 1990 – 1995.
